Serious Accidents Cause Serious Injuries
Injuries sustained in a serious accident are likely to have long-term, even permanent consequences. An automobile accident involving a rollover and roof crush can cause serious head injury; a fuel-fed fire can cause the most damaging burn injuries, and a high-impact rear-end collision can result in a significant back injury or neck injury. The most serious accidents, of course, often give rise to a wrongful death claim. Our office handles all types of catastrophic injuries arising from serious accidents, including:
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Burn Injury
- Dog Bite Attack
- 18-Wheeler Truck Accidents
- Vehicle Roll Over
- Fracture Injury
- Elevator Accidents
- Amputation/Loss of Limb
- Birth Defect/Birth Injury
Serious Accidents Require Serious Legal Representation
Typical personal injury cases involve claims for present and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In a serious accident involving long-term or permanent disabilities, these issues become much more complex. One must consider a variety of therapies for physical and vocational rehabilitation as well as adaptive strategies and assistive technology that may be necessary for the individual to have the maximum and self-care and independence and participate meaningfully in work and home life. Medical expenses are likely to be ongoing, and experts may need to be consulted regarding typical complications that are likely to arise over the life span of a person living with a particular disability.
Our attorneys work with doctors, economists, life care planners and other experts to work out a detailed picture of an injured person’s long-term needs for financial support. Armed with this information, we push hard to obtain the best settlement or jury verdict that ensures our clients will be capable of affording their medical and other needs for the future.
